Handbook For People Working With Youth Groups. Non-formal education practice in Lithuania

As the title suggests, this book is dedicated to everyone, who works or intends to work with young people in various contexts, and is willing to improve. In an attempt to at least partially respond to the existing needs, we have endeavoured to present different aspects of the youth work field starting with the peculiarities of a young person and the overall situation of youth work and have put a greater focus on specific aspects, related to the youth worker himself/herself and his/her ‘professional’ knowledge and action. This manual presents practically useful theoretical knowledge and models, provides specific principles of attitude and action for a youth worker and suggests specific instruments that facilitate work with oneself as well as with youth groups in different contexts.
